A great many things in our society today are fake. From news and marketing to science and politics, our world is filled with an extraordinary amount of lies, deception, disinformation, misinformation, fakery, fraud, facades, mirages and propaganda.
The good thing though is that once you awaken to the deception, you can use it as a tool for raising your consciousness. The idea that virtually everything is fake can be empowering rather than depressing. Sure, we’ve all felt overwhelmed, sad, angry and impotent at times when we’ve seen just how easily our (mis)leaders can fool the masses with sophistry and empty rhetoric, but they’ve all been placed there to challenge us to wake up more quickly and fully, and reclaim our world.
Here’s my list of the top 40 pieces of fakery in our world today:
1. Fake News
Let’s begin with the MSM (Mainstream Media) and their “news”, which is essentially corporate infotainment. The MSM waters down the news and makes it entertaining to further distract people from things of real significance…

That’s right, folks. Some people misuse religion. Don’t fall for the “mystery” thing. Wall Street just plain has the game rigged – rigged like the casinos in Las Vegas.
e than a third of a century after Ronald Reagan led America down a costly and unnecessary path into extreme income and wealth inequality, the opportunity to restore broad prosperity is rising before us. This is a moment not for despair, but resolve—and hard work.
Income inequality has become so outrageous that even Republicans vying for their party’s presidential nomination are talking about it, though not their party’s role in creating it or any workable solutions. On television the talking heads wring their hands, saying, “If only we could afford the costs of digging ourselves out of the economic hell most Americans have been shoved into.”
Actually, America has an immense pool of money that can be put to work closing the nation’s extreme inequality gap. Doing so will also improve our health, longevity, level of education, and knowledge…
In effect Uncle Sam loans these companies their taxes at 0 percent interest and then pays them interest on the loan. If you could get a bank to do that for you when you buy a house, after three decades with no payments you would have enough money to pay the bank the deferred purchase price and enjoy three to four times the house’s price in cash.
Of course, no banker is dumb enough to give you that deal. But Congress gives it to multinationals like Apple and GE and to billionaires like Warren Buffett every day. So when their shareholder reports indicate that they paid a tiny percentage of their profits in taxes, they really made a profit and paid Uncle Sam a small fee on their profits from deferring payment.
Here’s the good news buried in that outrage: These huge corporate deferral accounts can be tapped to pay for investments that will move us away from extreme inequality, generate millions of new jobs, and create future wealth through basic research and improved infrastructure…

John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman and Hoodwinked, explains very clearly, directly and succinctly how a mafia-type organization rules the world. Understanding their modus operandi, It becomes clear that their guidelines are opposite the Ten Commandments… “Thou shalt kill… Thou shalt steal… Thou shalt lie…” and so on down the line.
They dress nicely and they like to think of themselves as aristocracy, but they are not noble. They do not rule kindly and they don’t play fair. Their tactics include targeted assassinations on one end of the spectrum and mass destruction of Earth’s resources and human and animal populations on the other. Their methods are often subtle and always covert. We here, at ThoughtCrime.net, discuss the various means they are currently using to destroy life, liberty and happiness for entire populations, including our own. They imagine this pleases their god.
Excerpts from John’s new book:
“This is what we EHMS, (economic hitmen), do best: we build a global empire. we are an elite group of men and women who utilize international financial organizations to foment conditions that make other nations subservient to the corporatocracy running our biggest corporations, our government and our banks. Like our counterparts in the mafia, EHMS provide favors. These take the form of loans to develop infrastructure, electric generating plants, highways, ports, airports, or industrial parks. a condition of such loans is that engineering and construction companies from our own country must build all these projects. in essence, most of the money never leaves the United States; it is simply transferred from banking offices in Washington to engineering offices in New York, Houston or San Francisco.”
“Despite the fact that the money is returned almost immediately to corporations who are members of the corporatocracy (the creditor), the recipient country is required to pay it all back, principle plus interest. if an EHM is completely successful, the loans are so large that the debtor is forced to default on its payments after a few years. When this happens, then like the mafia, we demand our own pound of flesh. This often includes one or more of the following: control over United Nations votes, the installation of military bases, or access to precious resources such as oil or the panama canal. of course, the debtor still owes us the money and another country is added to our global empire.”

A fascinating, in-depth analysis of the Aurora, Colorado “Batman” shooting case. There is much mischief afoot in our fair world. Be sure to watch the part about his family background and his father’s career.
The James Holmes Conspiracy is for those who do not believe the story being told by the government and media.
James Eagan Holmes is the suspected perpetrator of a mass shooting that occurred on July 20, 2012, at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. He had no known criminal record prior to the shooting.
Several witness testimonies, news reports, theories and ideas behind the motives of the crime.
Topics discussed include the second suspect, weapons, police audio analysis, James Holmes education and bio, LIBOR scandal, MK Ultra, Project Gunrunner, and several other important elements. Several new pieces of evidence and testimonies all in one video.
The clip shows armed troops arresting role players on the street before a column of prisoners are marched towards a mock internment facility. Black Hawk helicopters are also seen whizzing between buildings.
The exercise was accompanied by very little media coverage. A Sun-Sentinel report said that Broward County police would be “assisting members of the U.S. Special Operations Forces who are undergoing urban warfare training.”
The drill, which was held in locations the military refused to disclose beforehand, began on March 17 and ended on Friday. 200 military personnel from all four branches, Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy, took part in the exercise.
“The goal is to prepare participants in realistic, unfamiliar training conditions before they deploy for combat overseas,” states the report. Residents were advised ”not to be alarmed by the Black Hawk helicopters in the sky.”
Broward County also saw similar drills back in March 2014, when Navy SEALS practicing storming a university building from a helicopter.
Concerns continue to circulate that such drills are designed for dual purpose and are part of a plan to acclimate Americans to accept martial law in a time of national emergency. As we have exhaustively documented, the fact that preparations are being made to use the military during domestic unrest is manifestly provable.
Jade Helm, an upcoming military drill that will involve nine states, caused controversy after Texas and Utah were labeled “hostile” territory in documents related to the exercise.
As we reported earlier this week, the exercise will involve soldiers operating “undetected amongst civilian populations,” to see if they can infiltrate without being noticed.
When these sheep-in-wolves-clothing are marching to their orders, will it occur to them how strangely convenient their training was, just in time for the collapse of the economy?
Real citizens aren’t afraid to think for themselves, whether in uniform or not.
This video is 5 years old and the rate of autism in the USA is now twice as high as it was then – 1 child in 50. The problem is more than a problem; it is a crime. The post will reveal how deep that rabbit hole goes. And there is much good information in the last half about how to restore the health of those stricken with autism. The body is resilient and can correct problems if it is given what it requires for optimal health. An interesting fact this movie points out is that autism was unknown before 1939, when three uses for mercury were “invented”.
